"Hayes slow down listeners, it's Ada. And producer Micah, Ada, we're so excited to see what you do as poet laureate, and I promise we will carry the torch. While the show is hard at work putting together season four, we hope you enjoy these episodes from the archives. This week's episodes are all about art of many forms. I'm Italy MoMA, and this is the slowdown. Once when I was visiting a college in New Jersey, a student asked me what the question was that I always return to. And I said, how do we live? And I think he was taken aback, but I mean, how do we live? Knowing all that we know, how do we live with mortality with the climate crisis with the end of all things? I'm not being facetious. I literally ask myself this daily. Do we surrender and give up and just crumble into a heaving mass of nothingness? Or, and you see where I'm going with this? Or do we find pleasure in this overwhelming world? That in its looming end is also wondrous and breathtaking and full of so much beauty it can bring you to your knees. I'm on the side of that ore, that yes and moment. Yes, the world is rough and I choose to live in it with all my brokenness and sweetness mingling in the surreal and very real present moment. I was talking to a friend the other day, and he said, which apocalypse? And we laughed, and it felt true. There are so many endings so many reasons to glue yourself and emphatically to what's good in this world. Today's poem is an poem, which is a term that commonly means a poem that describes a work of art, or imagines meaning behind a work of art. In this poem we see two influences one is the work of Sonia Sanchez Arias, a sculpture she called Dorian gray because it's a gown made entirely out of recycled plastics left over from hurricane Dorian. And the second is a quote by Oscar Wilde. Of course, from the novel Dorian gray. Behind any exquisite thing that existed, there was something tragic. And finally, the poet, Heidi, Andrea, restrepo, Rhodes, adds her poem to the conversation, and we witness the speaker struggle to understand how to find pleasure in this always ending world. Every exquisite thing, by Heidi, Andrea, restrepo, Rhodes. After Sonia Sanchez Arias sculpture, Dorian gray, after Oscar Wilde. That the most ordinary flower might bloom. Entire worlds crumble. That your dress may twirl, and catch the candle glean. Fingers bleed by needle. Child bones grow old by night. The reek of oil harvested. The brutal boring of terrestrial pores, of slick and serum, stolen earth, a cancer theft ripens, a 500 year old violence. A plastic violence, dancing in the glee of a mirror. Oh, dancer, in your everyday routine, that you inhale the sweet scent of your own skin, an ocean chokes on pile up, a mass grave of coral, bodies that once felt the tethered pulse of missing a sister, a manifest exploitation, water sweating human dust. You set aside the news. Comment on the sun. How it glistens on the gentle waves, how beautiful. How marvelous, you say, how divine accumulation tastes, divorcing sugar from its labor deaths, hiding the afterglow of tragedy in the spell of pleasures, luxuries, wretched white wall of happiness, designed to obscure the view every exquisite thing you've known has been somebody else's drowning. A vast field of obliterations, your Paradise,.

"Go to bob and sherry dot com. It's time for everyone needs a laugh here is comedian Cyrus Steele. I come from a small town from Savannah, Georgia. I appreciate the applause for Savannah. Thank you. It's too late. It's too late. Yeah, I love Savannah. You guys get snow. We get a lot of hurricanes in Savannah. People always ask me all the time, Sarah. You have to get worried about business event during hurricane season. Like, not really. I just don't like the names they give the hurricanes. Yeah. The last one we had was during hurricane Dorian's category 5 hurricane named Dorian. I didn't have a problem with that. But the one before that, I didn't care for him. Florence. Category 5 hurricane named Florence. Like no offense, ladies. I can say that's not a strong name. You want to go with a Margaret or Harriet. Those are strong names. Florence is not about to make me leave my house. 'cause I don't know who Florence is to you, but to me, Florence is that old lady in the back of the church that gives you peppermint sitting through the whole circle. That's who Florence is to me. It's not enough to make me leave my house. Now hurricane OJ, I might pack my bags. I don't like the name. Yeah, and you know his party that is the news. They like to perpetuate stuff. You know what to get higher ratings. They'll send somebody like Al Roker from The Today Show to scare everybody and be like, we're gonna have windows 56 mph. We're gonna have to reach rate 8 to 9 inches to rich brain and that's the weather. Oh, what's funny to me is right behind Al Roker will be somebody actually from Savannah wearing Bermuda shorts or Hawaiian shirt, smoking newports, walking his dog like, yeah, y'all stay inside. It's very dangerous. I hear y'all stay in China. Meanwhile, I'm scared of the eye of a hurricane. That's what you scare as back in the day. Like, I'm ten years old. I'm like, why would you give this human characteristic something that's not human? I have the hurricane. I'm in my room praying like lord, please don't let us get to have the hurricane. Let us get the leg of the pig toe. Please don't let us get that out of hurricane. We do get the air lord, let it be a lazy eye. Amen. Which I can speak on because I do have a lazy eye. Those of you sitting on the front row, you may notice from time to time because you won't know who I'm looking at. I'm still talking to you, sir. It's very frustrating being cross eyed. People who can see straight. Ma'am, you're laughing too hard. People who can see straight y'all take things for granted. You go to the movies, you get exactly. You get exactly what you asked for. I don't have that luxury. I go to the movies next to my 5 minutes to get my order right. I'm like, let me get two of those in the media popcorn. The only thing, the only thing the concession is gets right is the medium popcorn. I'm like, sir, I asked for milk dozen gummy bears. He's like, sir, at the time of the order, one of your ass was looking at the mic and I was wondering I was looking at starkers. Next. I don't have time for this. I don't have the heart to correct the man. So I go back to my seat, which is equally frustrating 'cause the lights are them. I go to sit next to the girl I came with, lights come up, turns out I've been sitting next to a 80 year old man the whole time. Which got really awkward because we were holding each other during the movie. Yeah, the girl I came with is sitting one row in front of me like, really? You didn't see me sitting here, really? I'm like, well, you know my eyes are messed up. Why didn't you say something? Why didn't you say something? She's like, I did, but you and your new girlfriend kept going. You being rude.

The mystery that I can't solve, why my kids and I'm not complaining. My kids textbooks are so cheap. I don't understand how I have two kids who don't have crazy textbook bills. I couldn't even when I was in college, I could not afford my textbooks. I would have to borrow books from classmates. I'd have to check them out at the library. Sometimes I would just have to wing it. Like I had a European history class when I was at temple. And all of the textbooks were wicked crazy expensive. And so since I couldn't afford the books, sometimes I would have to look at, okay, this week we're talking about, I don't know, Rousseau. I'd have to go to the library and read other books about Rousseau just to have like a shot in the dark of knowing what the heck my professor was talking about. I don't want to point textbooks. Were they that expensive? I mean, the rumor was when I was in college. The rumor was that textbook cost a $125 because it was written by your professor, your professor does not get paid that much and therefore he needs to where she needs to raise a little bit of money. Was that an urban legend or is that true, do you think? That might be, I mean, it's not true in every case, not every textbook is written by your professor, but I think that might be true in some cases. I just couldn't, like, my textbooks every semester at temple would be 8, $900. I was paying for school with tips from waitressing. There was no way. So when Olivia came headed to school, I thought, oh my God, how in the world? I'm going to lose my mind when their book bills come in. I keep saying, well, what about your textbooks? And they're like, don't worry, mom, my textbooks for this semester were $81. I was like, bro are they used? Are some of them online? Because I think a lot of textbooks are online now, aren't they? Obviously, it would be a lot cheaper. When I did my graduate degree, you could rent textbooks or buy used ones. Even with even renting books and buying used books, my book bills were higher. So I don't know what has happened to make college textbooks cheaper, but I round of

"Some spots. Hurricane Dorian wreaked unimaginable havoc on the bahamian islands known as the abacos. There's not enough words. In the dictionary to describe what hope count a lot like after that storm. Hope town has been Vernon Malone's home for all of his 82 years. His family has lived here since 1785. He's the town baker and grocer, and he and his wife rode out the storm in his store. It survived, but their home just up the street did not. The entrance went right in there. Vernon's son Brian had a home just around the corner. Had a home. That pile of rubble we see there. That's actually two and a half houses. Mine's on the bottom. Hope town is a bahamian landmark. Its candy striped lighthouse dates to 1863 and is pictured on the country's $10 bill. The lighthouse stood up to Dorian, but as we saw coming into the harbor, not much else did. I hear generators everywhere. This is how you guys are getting through. Yep. Yep. Brian Malone and Matt Winslow and American who owns a vacation home on the island, told us why all those generators are still running. The substation in marsh harbor, which feeds us the powers destroyed, and then of course you can see all the utility poles are pretty much destroyed. So this isn't a case where you come in and replace some poles and you flick a switch. This is months and months and months of work. Hope town is on one of several small islands ravaged by Dorian, which then moved across 7 miles of open water to marsh harbor the largest town in the abacos, at least 60 people died in marsh harbor, and destruction is still everywhere. Total damage and loss from Dorian is estimated at $3.4 billion. When you see the extent of the destruction, where do you even begin? How do you even begin? That's always the question. Where do we begin? The bahamian prime minister at the time, Hubert minnis, and his aide, vianna Gardner, visited marsh harbor with us, and pointed to a top priority, restoring electric power. How do you bring this back? The power we had to make the termination to set up our micro grids. The microgrids prime minister menace is talking about are small scale systems, more and more their solar arrays with battery storage for when the sun's not shining. They can either feed electricity into the larger grid or operate independently to power a single facility or a neighborhood. The way electricity has been produced in The Bahamas is with diesel fuel generating stations on each inhabited island, about 30 in all, feeding power to everyone through overhead lines. The main power plant for this island is literally 25 miles south of here. That's 25 miles of line that has to be rebuilt. Chris Burgess and Justin Locke run the island's energy program for an American nonprofit called the Rocky Mountain institute. They have solar projects throughout hurricane alley. After category 5 Maria hit Puerto Rico in 2017, they put microgrids on the roofs of ten schools. Maria also brushed St. Vincent. This is its first micro grid. Now the island's energy program has come to marsh harbor. So how big will this solar array be? 15 acres. Right through here. That microgrid will satisfy 10% of marsh harbor's total power needs, and will be built right between its government center and hospital. Both were without power for weeks after Dorian. This is high ground, which makes it less vulnerable to storm surge and other types of disaster events. So if a storm like Dorian hits again, the power to these two critical facilities stays on. Correct. The push to build storm proof solar microgrids in The Bahamas began in 2017, after hurricane Irma, another category 5 storm tore through tiny ragged island at the southern tip of the island chain. After I get island was devastated, I made a statement let us show the world what can be done. We may be small. But we can set an example to the world. So it's your goal to make ragged island a green island. Absolutely. Absolutely after which we can expand it. We can expand it. To see the prime minister's green experiment, we flew to ragged island with Whitney hasty, CEO of government owned utility, Bahamas power and light. Engineer Burlington strong met us there, and took us to what he calls the very first hurricane proof solar microgrid being installed in The Bahamas. Unlike other solar designs, it's very low to the ground. So this installation is rated to withstand a 180 mile an hour winds. Which is an even harder punch than Irma landed back in 2017. It was significant devastation on the south island. As you can see some of the pools snapped right at the very base of the pork right at the base. Is that what happened to all over the island? That happened throughout the island. This microgrid will produce enough electricity for ragged islands roughly 100 residents. The prime minister calls it a laboratory for the solar future. The past is a diesel generator needing boats to deliver fuel from hundreds of miles away. A system Whitney hasty says is a nightmare. And some were almost on the verge of running out of fuel in some of these islands because bad weather sometimes prohibits the ships from actually getting to some of these locations. The bahamian government spends nearly $400 million a year on imported fuel to keep its power plants running and passes that cost along to its citizens. They pay three to four times what we pay on the mainland U.S. electricity here. Right. And that isn't price gouging. I mean, that's just inherent cost. Everything costs more in the islands. The bill to install this new solar microgrid is $3 million. Hasty insists, it's money well spent. So you have this initial big outlay to build these panels, but over time, the

"I meant no harm. But there was harm. For her, as her case dragged on 16 months, she says depression was consuming her. Her mother moved from Texas to Augusta to be with her daughter. There would just be times when. It almost wasn't worth it to see the end of this. And so. You had thoughts of taking your own life. Yes. I started to plan my suicide. And I would do practice runs. The only thing that was stopping me was my mom. Because she was still in Augusta. My dad had gone back to Texas to go to work. And I just refused to let her hear that news by herself. So I would get on the phone and just try to talk around it and hey, there's no need to stick around, visitations, not worth it. Go back to Texas, just go. Just go. Her mother, Billy, heard that, while sitting in on our interview with her daughter. Reality told us that she was planning to kill herself. I heard that. Yeah. Did you know she was in that much trouble? I mean, there were some very dark days, but then they would be followed by a better day. I just knew when I was there in Georgia, I couldn't leave. I couldn't leave her. In 2018, at the age of 26, winter pleaded guilty. The judge said he would make an example of her. She served four years behind bars plus three now, answering to a probation officer. She still can't talk about the case. I've had four years of just trying to say, I'm not a terrorist. I can't even begin to talk about my actual espionage indictment. Or have a sense of accomplishment in having survived prison. Because I'm still stained by them accusing me of being the same groups that I enlisted in the air force to fight against. So I don't let myself feel anything regarding the actual act or the charge. Until I can let it be known that I'm not what they said I was. She served her sentence during prison lockdowns for COVID and the unrest after the police murder of George Floyd. In a cell with two companions, depression and bulimia, she became self destructive. You know, every time that I had to give in to my illness, I put it on my body. I cut myself. Everywhere. I couldn't leave my cell. I couldn't work out. And all I could do was ask why and ask why. And a chaplain walked by. And I asked him why they were doing this to us. And that same chaplain that I had seen for two years. Look to me in my face. And said, nobody gives a about y'all in here. I started getting high that day. Everyone knows their drugs in prison. I was reduced to binging in purging, getting high every day. And cutting myself. Have you been able to get clean? I have, I just am ashamed to say how hard it is. It's worth noting how inconsistent the government is in these cases. In 2008, Greg bergerson, a Pentagon employee, was convicted of selling secrets to the Chinese. That's him in FBI surveillance, getting his pocket stuffed with cash. His sentence was 6 months shorter than reality winners. In 2012, former army general and CIA director David Petraeus gave notebooks of top secret information to an author who was his mistress. He was charged with misdemeanor mishandling of classified information and never spent a minute in jail. Was it worth it? I try so hard not to frame things as being worth it or not worth it. What I know is that I'm home. With my parents and we take our lives every day moving forward as being richer in knowing what to be grateful for. It's okay you're here. You're here. Me too. Grateful for the moment of her prison release. We said this story is complicated. On the one hand, individuals can't be deciding what to declassify. On the other, some things are classified to conceal wrongdoing. Torture in the war on terror, for example. In a home in Texas, one mother has simplified the story her way. With a portrait of a veteran, and a display of a commendation for meritorious service to her country. What reality did was not espionage. What reality did was patriotism. She actually stood up and worked for the American people to give us the truth about an attack on our vote in attack on our democracy, an attack on our country. You know, now I'm very proud of her for that. Last month, reality winner and her attorney asked President Biden for a pardon. When hurricane Dorian slammed into the northern Bahamas in 2019, the category 5 storm caused nearly inestimable damage on a number of islands. There is a growing consensus among scientists that climate change is making hurricanes stronger and more destructive. That's very bad news for The Bahamas, a string of more than 700 low lying islands, stretching from Florida nearly down to Cuba in the heart of what's come to be known as hurricane alley. When we visited in late 2019, hurricane recovery was really just beginning, but we discovered that The Bahamas had found a ray of hope, specifically a solar array that can survive future hurricanes, and in the process it may have important lessons for the rest of the world. With sustained winds of 185 mph.

Over 700 rioters have since been arrested. Some 225 charged with assault over 75 with using a weapon to attack law enforcement. A year later, the January 6th committee has requested information from a crop of high profile conservatives, including Sean Hannity, Jim Jordan, and Scott Perry. Many of whom haven't been so accommodating. Former Trump adviser and confidant Steve Bannon charged with two counts of contempt of Congress after Bannon refused to testify before the panel or turnover requested documents about his role in the lead up to the riot. The full House of Representatives has voted to hold Mark Meadows in criminal contempt of Congress. Former president Trump's White House chief of staff failed to comply with the subpoena from the select committee investigating the January 6th assault. The Meadows and Bannon cases, along with a trove of Trump White House records, will remain tied up in the courts for several more months at least. In the meantime, we can expect the former president's allies in Congress to continue flooding the news with misdirection and revisionism. The truth is being censored and covered up. As a result, the DoJ is harassing peaceful patriots across the country. Let me be clear, there was no insurrection and to call it an insurrection, in my opinion, is a bold faced line. You know, if you didn't know the TV footage was a video from January the 6th, you would actually think it was a normal tourist visit. Absent a steady flow of big revelations. The press has had to look to emerging clues from the complex investigations into the militias and extremist groups, like the oath keepers, Proud Boys, and three percenters who participated in the breach, which is very likely why those efforts have been the target of Tucker Carlson's spurious logic. Strangely, some of the key people who participated on January 6th have not been charged. Look at the documents. The government calls those people unindicted co-conspirators. What does that mean? Well, it means that it potentially every single case they were FBI operatives. So FBI operatives were organizing the attack on the capitol. Come on, Tucker. We all know what we saw that day. Though the TV cameras didn't capture everything, the week after the insurrection, we brought you the story of an oath keeper named Jessica Watkins, who secretly communicated with other militia members as she marched towards the east entrance of the capitol. We have a good group. We got about 30 40 of us, we're sticking together and sticking to the plan. Be safe, be safe, God, bless your godspeed and keep going. Get it, Jess. Do your. This is what we lived up for. Everything we train for. And eventually inside. We are in the mezzanine. We are in the main dome right now. We are rocking it. They're throwing grenades. They're freaking shooting people with paintballs, but we're in here. She was speaking over a walkie talkie app called zello, unaware that our reporter Michael was listening in. The sound he captured is now being used as evidence by the Department of Justice in its conspiracy case against the oath keepers, the largest criminal trial of the lot. Micah had no idea who she was or what she was planning that day, but he had been tracking this type of militia communication for over a year back in July on the 6 month anniversary of the attacks. We asked him to revisit his fellow reporting, which we're repeating now with some updates. To chart how the right wing paramilitaries use the app to lead a violent coup attempt. And also where the movement might be headed next. When I recorded that oath keeper tape on January 6th, it wasn't by chance. I had begun monitoring militias on zello way back in the fall of 2019. Not to understand how these groups stormed government buildings. But to hear how they stormed storms. And we begin with the relentless threat from hurricane Dorian, rapidly strengthening over the past 24 hours to a monster. I was looking into this idea for an on the media story based on a pattern I'd seen emerged during hurricane season. In 2017, as Irma and Harvey ripped through the news cycle, zello exploded in popularity. Zello, the Internet walkie talkie app is the number one free app, according to iTunes. It's the primary source of communication for members of the Louisiana Cajun navy, civilian volunteers, including a Facebook community of hunters and fishermen throwing their boats on the back of four wheel drive trucks and rescuing people from completely different towns. It's an extension of a movement founded during Hurricane Katrina. Just like with past storms, copycat rescue groups sprung up all across the Internet to monitor Dorian as a careen towards the east coast. Guys, don't get complacent. It's the calm before the storm. So tonight we can expect even tornadoes to touch down and all kinds of crazy stuff. This is a guy who goes by the name 1% watchdog. He's the leader of a zella group called the United States civilian force, or USC, they ran the biggest Dorian storm relief channel that I could find at the time, featuring several hundred people. Those who want to volunteer to go to Zelda dot com forward slash training. They seem to have a pretty sophisticated operation going, but there was also something else notable about 1% watchdog and USC. His podcast and social media were filled with anti government and InfoWars type conspiracy videos. This is part three on our coverage of the Parkland Florida school shooting mass shooting to those of you who are thinking this is a false flag. It might be. He also had this rap song. And I got two little things that come up for us I said we're coming for you the U.S. CF Facebook group advocated for mass deportations of undocumented migrants. And there was something about their combination of humanitarian aid and xenophobia that struck me as a contradiction. But when I brought that up, he and his group strongly disagreed. Are you guys so sick that you think someone's drowning in a hurricane and they need rescue that we're going to say show us your papers? Yes, I wear trumpet. Yes, I believe in the wall. Yes, I believe in people coming here the right way. I have no problem with it. But it's the fan and somebody needs help. I'm not gonna ask it for your papers first. I'm gonna help you. That second voice is a guy named AJ Andrews. His yellow profile featured a photo of him wearing a confederate hat. I initially reached out to him to learn more about 1% watchdog. AJ had collaborated with him for years, but he didn't know his real name or where he lived. Anyway, AJ was much more interested in talking about his own local militia based in western New York and how they used sello. He ended up inviting me to hang out with them at lobby day, a gun rally in.

God bless everyone and this was the precursor to shop gate. Guess because this was the tweet where he claimed that alabama was among the states that were in the path of hurricane. Doria young and within an hour the The weather service in birmingham alabama said nope. Nope don't don't worry it's going. This is not something that has been projected. It's not something we need to worry about. It's fine and and for the next several days. He was arguing with the scientists found with the hurricane was going to have an essentially he got into a situation and i mean this is true whenever he was going to say whenever he lies so basically whenever he says he called back down he cannot accept that. Sometimes it's actually better and you look better to say yeah. I made a mistake. That was shouldn't have set alabama. That was on the list. I was given than yes a spend the next few days. Arguing with the national oceanographic institute. And everyone who this stuff in great detail drooling extra on the on the map with shafi clearly by hand and then showing people and yeah committing a crime of changing your federal weather map And yeah i'm pretending that that was actually what you've been given instead. Let yup see. Alabama was always there all the time. Yeah know. I've moved out about so because of his enormously fragile ego he gets into this situation of of going having gone to fight. He's already taken at lie. Far enough the he has to keep going doubling down rather than at any point backing down. Yeah yeah yeah. He was the same with co v and wherever the heck does all it was a code word and everybody joined in just kept going with the gamblers mentality.

Mice song that i did is called big sexy and cute and when i recorded this song africa. I didn't even think about saying or will. This fit in a john russo cup. I just gravitate to music. That feels good to be. So when i put it out i got so much love from the so community. And that's really how. I began to make my connections and form those relationships to help kind of foster you know my career and that was really the springboard as to what kind of got me on my trajectory. Now the really being involved in the world and in working the carnival circuit. Wow okay now. You are from binney. I wanna dial it back a little bit. Because i wanted to give people kind of a background on your from me ryan. This is a little bit about being from any and being a musician in the bahamas and getting you know getting on local platform. Yeah well you know. I always tell people i feel like i was born in a stat because my dad was collapsing. Anyhow too. bad call brandon eclipse sony. It's and my house was probably about twenty steps to the back of the hotel where the bad used to play so all night long. I tell you i love. We would have music. I mean from. I can't remember he was pulling me on stage and i always gravitate into that so Just as a young child. I've been immersed in calypso. I've been immersing so originally. And i feel like i got a good politics. Far is concerned is just taken in music. And that's really where my love for came from. So i've been performing ever since a young child when i moved to the states because my mom is american in my dad is bahim in wing moved to the states to kind of finish up school.

"hurricane dorian" Discussed on TalkRadio 630 KHOW
"Waves coming off Africa. I'm joined by Dr Phil Klotzbach research scientists and the Department of Atmospheric Science. Colorado State University. We're talking about hurricanes and hurricane seasons, so The storms that we're familiar with along the east coast of the United States and the Gulf Coast. Those are the same types of storms that we also see in the Pacific, even though they're called something different over there, right. That's correct, so hurricanes in the Atlantic, their counterparts in the Western Pacific Ocean, so near Japan, China Korea. Those are known as typhoons so basic, but the generic term is often used. This iPhone are tropical cyclone, um and not to use that can be used anywhere so Atlantic specific even in Indian Ocean all can refer to as tropical cyclones but the more specific term in the Atlantic and in the eastern North Pacific as hurricane in the western North Pacific. Um, is Typhoon and then the ingredients that you were talking about earlier that impact the size and intensity as we continue through hurricane season. When these storms start to develop, what is it that everyone should look out for? To get a sense as to whether or not this could turn into a serious storm? Perhaps a major hurricane? Yeah, So if you look at the discussions at the National Hurricane Center puts out when they're writing advisories on the particular storm like, for example, Ailsa what they look at. You look at things like how one the waters are. The waters are warmer than normal. That tends to provide more fuel for the storm and also tends to make the atmosphere a little more unstable, which helped Basically just helps to make a stronger hurricane. Another thing again they talk about a lot is that work was on his vertical wind shear. So basically in the Atlantic in general, your low level wind you wind at low levels in the atmosphere, Blood in the East. And at upper levels they blow out of the West. So basically, there's a sheer between low levels an upper level, so there's a change in wind direction with height. If there's a lot of that share that Bad for the hurricane. Good for the people in the hurricane path, worry that there's low shear than these songs to really intensify quickly. And like, for example, last year Um we had a ton of storm activity, especially leak. And that's because we had really, really low levels of that wind shear and that really allowed these storms to ramp up and intensify into being the strong hurricanes. Are there certain atmospheric conditions that lead to lower wind shear or higher wind shear? How does that work? Yes. So when we do our seasonal forecast, one of the big things that we talk about every year and are we going to have L Nino conditions are not now Al Nino is warmer than normal water they meet eastern and central Tropical Pacific Ocean. When you have an El Nino event in the tropical Pacific Ocean, it tends to increase the upper level winds the winds of, say, 20 30,000 ft In the atmosphere, it increases them out of the West, and that tends to tear apart Hurricane As we're developing and intensifying. So when we do our seasonal forecast, one of the big things we're looking for every years. Are we going to have El Nino conditions are not. For example, 2015. We had a very strong El Nino event. It was a very quietly in a hurricane season with a lot of wind shear. Last year, we had effectively the opposite of El Nino, which is known as La Nina. When you have one media conditions at times, we need much more conducive. Weaker upper level winds, and that's what we saw last year, which is one of the reasons why we had such an active hurricane season. Last year. I'm joined by Dr Phil Klotzbach research scientists in the Department of Atmospheric Science at Colorado State University. We're talking about hurricanes and hurricane season as we're all watching these storms make their way towards the United States. Usually, once they start to get to the Caribbean. We hear about the impact that land and mountainous regions could have on the storm. Can you talk a little bit about that and step us through how that affects the size and intensity of a hurricane? Yes, Yes. So basically, hurricane live off of warm ocean water. So when they run out of that warm ocean water, AK go over land. Um, that is detrimental for the hurricanes. Hurricanes will weaken when they go over land. Now there is a difference of hurricane goes over fairly flat lands a small island. It might not be particularly impacted. But if you have a lot of topography, we have high mountains, for example, parts of Cuba and Haiti and Dominican Republic that can really, really significant the impact. Um, the hurricane circulation such you know, we can really, really dramatically And that's one of the challenges with these forecasts for an individual storm is that a lot of these landmasses, especially in the Caribbean, and Central River, especially Caribbean are fairly small, but they may have Paul Mountain so Very subtle changes in the track and the big differences as to how impacted these hurricanes are by the mountainous terrain. For example, a couple of years ago with Hurricane Dorian, there was a thought for a while, but it might significantly be impacted by The Dominican Republic and if that had been the case And there's just and I've gone over the high mountains there. Perhaps that would have been pouring apart really wouldn't have been that much of a storm. The storm, unfortunately tracked farther to the East completely avoided that land and was able to ramp up into the very, very powerful hurricane, and it ended up becoming taking a look back. Historically, what are some of the region's sum of the parts of the United States that are most susceptible to hurricanes? Yeah, So if you look historically at hurricane, you know the state that they get hit the most for enough, and that makes sense for a couple of reasons. One. Basically, the state kind of sits in the kind of a predominant track of where these storms go, but also, obviously like Florida or state like Texas. Has a large amount of coastline. So, for example, you know it's it's hard to get a hurricane making landfall, saying Alabama because the coast of Alabama's fairly short whereas if they exploit our Texas Obviously has a much longer a much larger coastline and obviously then get pissed more often. Louisiana also is fairly often by hurricanes. Obviously last year, they were the only under the gun last year, getting went by three separate hurricanes. Then we have seen hurricanes stay in the Atlantic Ocean and brush up or directly hit the Carolinas and that part of the U. S. What would cause that to happen? Yes. And so typically, what kind of steers Most hurricanes especially was coming off Africa basically work known as the Bermuda High pressure area. I mean, so I thought for semi permanent high pressure area near Bermuda, but it doesn't days park over the mood every year, it can shift He's taking shift West. It can be stronger. It can be weaker and so basically a lot of the storms kind of a nice garden variety. Hurricane doesn't impact anyone will track generally from east to west across the Atlantic, and then what we'll do is we'll reach basically the western.
